Time for external breathers. So how can you tell what is an acceptable amount and what is too much.
This was after a 1 hour ride. Mix of slab and street 50km

I have driven ball bearings in the holes and peened over the hole. Easy to drill and tap 1/8" pipe and put in a flush plug too. External breathers need to be left open, no filter on them. Getting a lot of drool out of them? You have excessive blowby and/or bad breather valves, already covered. Do not route the hoses anywhere they may end up oiling the tire, obviously. Nothing wrong with a catch can, personal choice.

Too much is when the back tire tries to pass the front tire in a curve. Acceptable is anything less that that. :ROFLMAO:

Interesting approach with the ball bearings.
